My current mail carrier, Vanessa, is the best. My experience at the Post Office itself varies, depending on the length of the line. The staff is always helpful and can be very polite. If you are prepared, , and most others are as well, then it is a good PO to go to.


Absolutely horrible experience. The 2 African American ladies who man the front desk are extremely rude people and have the absolute worse costumer service skills I have ever seen in my entire life. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND NO ONE USES THIS POST OFFICE! (Unless you want to be spoken to in a very rude manner)


I live on Willow Street (intersection of Hempstead Gardens Drive) in West Hempstead. Today, all of my mail including a wedding invitation, which I cannot read now- was completely soaked because the postal employee did not close my mailbox properly. I usually do not complain but last week, all of my packages were left on my stoop in the rain and I was home. Our old letter carrier ALWAYS rang the bell when he left packages on our doorstep. What is going on? Can we get our old letter carrier back?
